This week our guest is Dr. Paul Kaye. Born in London in 1950, Dr. Paul Kaye is a dedicated student of spiritual thought and practices. For over 30 years Dr. Kaye has studied with renowned educator and author, John-Roger, founder of the church of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA), an ecumenical, non-denominational church that teaches Soul Transcendence. He currently serves as President of MSIA, and is an ordained minister with a doctorate in spiritual science. Dr. Kaye has edited several of John-Roger’s books, and co-authored six books on practical spirituality with bestselling author, John-Roger, D.S.S., the current one being Living the Spiritual Principles of Health and Well-Being. This book teaches how to utilize a little known yet dynamic aspect of yourself to create better health.
How many times have you tried to lose weight, start exercising, and eat better, only to find yourself doing the very thing you vowed not to do? You can change all that by getting the cooperation of the basic self. All of us have three selves (high self, conscious self, and basic self). The basic self has the responsibility of maintaining the body, the high self is responsible for holding the spiritual direction and the conscious self chooses whether or not to go along with the divine game plan. In physical sickness and in health, your high self always holds the spiritual design. If your conscious self rests and gets out of the way, it can permit the basic self to work on healing your physical body. The basic self looks after the physical body. It builds the body from the point that the sperm enters the egg. In addition to its key role in the maintenance and health of the body, the basic self is also responsible for the functioning of the psychic centers (chakras) of the body. We can relate to the basic self as our animal instinct or the areas of our memory, habits, or emotions. If you want to change something, it is crucial to get the basic self’s cooperation. When your basic self is on board with your health plan, you have just harnessed one of the most important yet underutilized resources for achieving greater health and well-being.
